Default Help for pc specs

I'm building a gaming pc, I dont have "too" much computer knowledge, and dont plan to overclock any parts. Generealy im looking to build a system that will play any if not most of the games out there currently at atleast medium qaulity, here are the specs, and I'd like to see what you think.

GeForce 7950GT PCI-EXPRESS
Intel E6400 2.13GHz
Corsair XMS2 2x512 Xtreme Memory PC5400
Asus P5NSLI Socket776 nForce570 DDR2 533/667 Dual Channel.
Thermaltake TR2 500W PSU

This gets me to about 1,000USD, let me know what you think of the parts, and cost wise if it's worth it, or any suggestions, thx.

Looks pretty good to me. Can you go for 2GB of ram? It will really help in gaming.

Looks pretty sweet to me. ALTHOUGH, if you throw in another 80 bucks you can get two 7900gs KO and run sli instead of just one 7950.

A single 7950GT will beat 7900GS SLI in some cases, so it's not really worth it.
